I have been in dire need of some spring, so on my way back from mom's today, I stopped at the Arnold Arboretum, hoping to find some signs.

The sun had disappeared, but it was still fairly mild. I found snowdrops popping up beneath the bare trees, and most of the snow was gone. One adorable little girl in a princess dress found the trees irresistible.

I found a couple of trees that were ahead of the curve.

The pussy willows were a little past prime, but still photogenic.

There were robins everywhere. This fat little guy sat still while I circled him, looking for the best angle.

At the end of the Willow Trail, I came across a group of elves getting ready for a photo shoot.

The gal in the rust-colored outfit was donning a crown of antlers, and at least one of the assistants had pointy ears. I just smiled and kept on walking.

By then, it had started raining lightly so I headed back to the car and home. My spirit has been lifted by the little signs of spring I found in one of my favorite places. Hopefully spring will come for real, and soon!

It's nice that you found some signs of Spring. Plus fairies, elves and a princess.

Wonderful pictures!

Somehow, I never come across princesses and elves on any of my walks...

Thank you!

It's not too surprising to find them here. But both at the same place and the same time? Magical!

All so pretty! I have been reading a series of English cozy mysteries about aristocratic snowdrop growers, by a writer called Susan Alexander; I had no idea the bulbs could be so costly!

I planted some where I used to live, but I never got around to it here. I love that they're usually the first flowers of spring.
